Newsletter is a form of marketing collateral used by many MNCs to reach out to their various stakeholders. Newsletter marketing involves sending out informational newsletters to interested parties. Some companies send newsletters through the mail, but most of companies today connect with customers over email. Email is cheaper and faster and produces data that can be more easily studied to create more relevant newsletters.

Newsletters contain a range of content that is not exclusively related to shopping. Companies might include everything from industry news, to interesting statistics, and "how to" articles in a given issue of a newsletter. Because consumers already indicated their interest in receiving the newsletter, companies can create more interesting content they know will engage their base.

Information about multiple products, sales, or company initiatives can be contained in a single email newsletter. This information is often more detailed than what could be included in a print or radio ad, because there is no limit on the length of an email. The multimedia aspect of emails also allows business to include links that allow customers to buy products immediately. They present convenient sales channels that lead customers directly to a company's official site.

Typically, though, larger businesses, and particularly retailers, use newsletters most frequently. With larger product lines, multiple sales and deals, and special offers, these companies usually have more information to relay to customers at any given time. Also, larger companies have more expansive marketing departments featuring copywriters and designers, who are specially trained to create stunning looking email newsletters.
